Banks at Pabst: A Review

As it goes with a lot of artists, I distinctly remember first hearing about Banks. It was 2014, and I was in my dreaded magazine writing class, a few months from graduating journalism school in Arizona. Word to the wise, not from the wise–wait, what’s that saying? Never. Take.

Two Door Cinema Club Blows MKE Away with their First Show Here

The audience was quiet and waiting around slowly anticipating Two Door Cinema Club’s premiere MKE’s show at Pabst Theater.

Milwaukee Fell in Love with Ingrid Michaelson at The Pabst

The stage had huge panels with lyrics written all over it. They were filled with words scratched out and scribbled like it was a journal. Her name was written on the top of the panels. The instruments were all set. It was now just a waiting game for the audience. They sipped their wine and drank their beers, hoping soon
